Nutritious Foods That Help Boost Your Immune System

Eating right plays a major role in keeping well, too. One cannot avoid a risk of being affected by the virus, but the right diet is said to support the immune system, so that it is ready to take on anything. Here are a few immune boosting-remedies to load up on…

‘Have enough proteins and antioxidants’


There are several nutrients that you can include in your eating plan and protein ranks high among them at this time. Affirms dietician Sheela Tanna, “Most Mumbaikars are avoiding non-veg because of Corona virus scare and heat. Asian vegetarian food lacks in proteins, which play the role of immunity booster and unfortunately are ignored, too. Every meal must include a protein like dals, pulses (sprouted), paneer, curd, nuts and seeds.”


She shares tips to make them. “Make cutlets by mixing paneer with boiled vegetables and spices. It doubles its protein value and can be eaten in burger, sandwich or a roll. Also, mix all the dals and soak, grind and make dosas, chillas, dhoklas or uttapams. You get complete protein (all nine essential amino acids) from vegetarian meals.”

Spices that play an anti-bacterial role


The culinary cabinet has a variety of spices that have significant antibacterial and anti-fungal advantages — such as ginger, garlic, cloves, cinnamon, turmeric and cumin, says clinical dietician Zainab Gulamhusein.
